Kenneth Allan Fredrickson, affectionately known as Kenny, passed away on July 3, 2023, in Duluth, MN, after a short battle with cancer. Born on May 1, 1953, in Virginia, MN, Kenny's spirit, humor, and courage will be remembered by all who knew him.

Kenny was a graduate of Mt. Iron School, class of 1971, and furthered his education at Eveleth Vocational College, earning his degree in 1988. Kenny served in the National Guard from 1971 to 1977. Following his military service, he embarked on a career that included positions at DWP, Eveleth Taconite, and United Taconite. Upon retirement, Kenny continued to work, captaining at Zippel Bay Resort. 

Kenny had a deep love for the outdoors. His passions included fishing, hunting, and boating. He also had a fondness for 50's and 60's music, often questioning his friends and family about lyrics and artists. However, what Kenny loved most was spending time with his family and friends. His courage was evident not only in his battle with cancer but in the way he lived his life, fearlessly and with love.

Kenny leaves behind a loving family, including his wife Barbara Fredrickson; his daughter Jennifer Bever; his son Joseph Fredrickson and his wife Michele; his step-daughter Nancy Lamppa and her husband Aaron. He was a proud grandfather to Donny and Cheyenne Bever, Kelsea Kaivola, Alana Lindberg, Kaitlin and Madison Pierce, Alex Bee, Sadie Theel, and Davis Theel. He is also survived by his brother Dick Fredrickson and his wife Jan; his sister Kathy Knuti and her husband Kim; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and many great friends who will miss him dearly.

A Memorial service will be held Friday, July 7, 2023 at Range Funeral Home in Virginia at 11:00 am with visitation beginning one hour prior to the service. A luncheon for friends and family will follow in the Mountain Iron Community Center.
